The acreage, yield, production, monthly, and season average value, and crop 
value statistics in this bulletin are official State and USDA estimates prepared by the 
Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The county and area detail in these statis- 
tics were made possible by the participation of the Department of Agricultural Ec- 
onomics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. Market price quota- 
tions and shipment statistics are from the Market News Section and the USDA Con- 
sumer and Marketing Service. Other sources of data are cited in footnotes. 

Agencies in the Florida Department of Agriculture providing basic data used 
in developing statistics in this summary include the Road Guard Section, Division 
of Inspection; State Markets Section, Celery Advisory Committee, and Sweet Corn 
Advisory Committee, Division of Marketing, the Plant Inspection Section, Division 
of Plant Industry and the South Florida Vegetable Exchange. County Agents of Flor- 
ida's Agricultural Extension Service were very helpful in supplying information on 
vegetable production in their counties. 

Growers, shippers, processors, sales agencies, and transportation firms 
voluntarily supplied much of the data used in developing these official statistics. 
This public spirited cooperation is appreciated.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



TfflS PUBLICATION INCORPORATES FINAL RE- 
VISIONS FOR THE 1958-59 THROUGH 1964-65 SEASONS, 
FOLLOWING ANALYSIS OF THE 1964 U. S. CENSUS OF 
AGRICULTURE, U. S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE. 

SEASONAL GROUPS — Seasonal estimates are made 
for most of Florida' s vegetable , melon, potato, and straw- 
berry crops to show supplies for a shorter period of time 
than the entire marketing season. The seasonal classifi- 
cation used for each of Florida's crops is shown on a pre- 
vious page along with usual planting and harvesting dates. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which has 
been planted for harvest during one designated season. To 
avoid duplication, acreage lost, and replanted to the same 
crop in time for harvest in the same season is counted only 
once. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage harvested 
or partially harvested plus any additional acreage which 
reached maturity, but was not harvested due to labor short- 
ages, low prices or other economic conditions. Acreage 
lost before or at maturity through natural causes is not 
included in the acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production of merchantable 
quality produced per acre and includes any unharvested 
production left in fields for economic reasons. 

PRODUCTION includes the quantity actually har- 
vested plus any quantity that was left due to economic 
abandonment. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and is of merchantable quality 
but was not harvested because of labor shortages, low 
prices or other economic factors. 

PRODUCTION OF VALUE is that total production 
less the quantity abandoned due to economic reasons. 



UNIT VALUE for production sold on the fresh mar- 
ket represents the F. O. B. price received or its equivalent 
for all grades and quality of the commodity including selling 
charges. Unit value for quantities sold to processors for 
the 1963 fall crop and all prior seasons, represent prices 
paid the grower at the first receiving point. Since that 
time, value is on a delivered to the processing plant door 
basis and includes transportation cost, etc. 

TOTAL VALUE is the value of production sold. It 
excludes economic abandonment, cullage, and any portion 
of a crop not harvested. 

RAIL - TRUCK shipments are included in the 
straight rail shipments shown for each crop. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS — Represents the average 
number of packages per rail car based on tabulations of 
way-bills showing the contents of each car. 

MIXED RAIL CARS — For major commodities the 
quantity shipped in mixed rail loads is tabulated from way- 
bills. The total quantity of each commodity is then con- 
verted to the equivalent of a straight rail car load. 

TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent 
carlots on the basis of a predetermined load factor. A 
minor difference of carlot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments may 
exist because of rounding. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT — The official 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to the most common- 
ly used container. The following table gives the net weight 
used per container and the number of containers per hun- 
dredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1967-68 VEGETABLE SEASON 



Florida vegetables, melons, potatoes and straw- 
berries marketed during the 1967-68 season were estimated 
at 45,659,000 hundredweight, 3 percent more than was 
marketed the previous year, but nearly 5 percent less than 
in 1965-66. Total sales were estimated at S294, 579. 000, 
compared to 8256,416,000 the previous season, and 
8257,044,000 during the 1965-66 season. Vegetable sales 
were up an estimated 16 percent, or nearly 35 milliondol- 
lars more than in 1966-67, and 20 percent more than sales 
during 1965-66. Melon sales were down about 1. 5 million 
dollars and strawberries were down about 1. 4 million dol- 
lars in comparison with 1966-67. Irish potatoes sold slight- 
ly cheaper, but }'ields were the highest of the last 3 years. 
Sales during 1967-68 were 86,282,000, or nearly 38 per- 
cent more than sales from the previous year's light crop, 
but only 4 percent more than the 1966 sales. 

Weather conditions during the fall were favorable 
for heavy production. Shipments through December 30 con- 
verted to hundredweight were 42 percent more than in the 
previous fall and 37 percent more than average (1963-65). 

Florida vegetable farming is a continuing operation. 
Preparation for the 1967-68 crop was underway before har- 
vest of the 1966-67 crop was complete. Land clearing, 
ditching and diking were active. Celery and eggplant seed- 
beds were planted for late July and August transplanting. 
By September 2, the equivalent seeded acreage of tomatoes 
was approximately 16, 900 acres. This is the most impor- 
tant early crop planted. Seeding of sweet corn began in 
early August and by mid-August, weekly plantings had be- 
come significant — all in the Everglades mucklands. Beans 
for early fall fresh market and processing were being seed- 
ed, beginning in late August in West and North Florida, and 
at Pompano by mid- September. The South Peninsula was 
subjected to rather excessive recurring rains from late 
September into mid-October. Hurricane Beulah by-passed 
Florida, crossing the Gulf to the Rio Grande Valley instead. 
Cold of November 19-21 brought a general frost to North 
Florida and terminated harvest of most remaining vege- 
tables. Since the late October rains, an extremely dry pe- 
riod was experienced by much of Florida, until broken De- 
cember 11. Up to that time, most transplant "live"wasde— 
pendent upon applied moisture. December temperatures 
were above normal until the 25th when minimums were in 
the 30's and 40's overthe Peninsula. Gusty winds accom- 
panied the cold front. 

Seeding of watermelons got underway in late Novem- 
ber in the important Immokalee area. On Friday, January 
26. frost and freezing temperatures were general. Low 
temperatures ranged from the low 20' s in the north to the 
mid 30' s in the Everglades and the Lower East Coast. 
Colder locations were lower. As low as 32 degrees was 
reported southward into the farming area of Homestead. 
The Everglades had frost quite general at most locations 
away from the Lake. Central and North Florida crops had 
become fairly well acclimated. 



During the weekending February 10, cold again oc- 
curred over an area parched from drouth. Snow flurries 
were observed in Central Florida on the night of the 7th. 
Recurring cold and dry weather continued to prevail until 
the weekending February 24 when rainfall was abundant in 
all sections of the State, except for a few places along the 
Lower East Coast. Most drouth-stricken areas now had 
adequate moisture. Most crops were well acclimated and 
the rather general frost throughout North and Central areas 
February 25 and 26 generally retarded growth. However, 
transplanted peppers in Central Florida were damaged se- 
verely and had to be reset heavily. Tomatoes in West Cen- 
tral and North Central areas had become toughened and 
most came through. Most potato plants in Hastings where 
emerged were damaged February 13 and again the 25. On 
the average, this wasthe coldest February since 1958. and 
one of the coldest on record in Florida. 



Again, on March 25. frost formations occurred but 
were variable, generally light to moderate. West-Central 
Countieshad lows of 33 degrees. Spot replanting was nec- 
essary at Webster but frost disappeared at Plant City be- 
fore sun-up. Zellwood reported 32 degree weather with no 
frost, but 28 degrees the following morning brought a little 
frost and considerable ice. Hastings potatoes were again 
frosted as were those north of Gainesville. The acreage 
damaged was relatively small. By the third week of April, 
planting was confined to corn and celery, primarily in the 
Zellwood area. Dry weather prevailed and irrigation really 
saved crops in all areas. By the last of the month, locally 
heavy showers occurred in North Florida and along the Cen- 
tral East Coast, but little relief from the drouth was felt 
in most of the Peninsula. Showers were mostly light and 
scattered. Harvest had begun on potatoes in Hastings and 
by the 10th of May. the area was moving into full volume. 
By the third week of May, shower activity began a more 
rapid termination of harvest in some areas, especially in 
South Florida. Rains were heavy in the Everglades the 
week of May 20-26 with 8. 8 inches reported at the Experi- 
ment Station. By this time, corn and tomatoes made up 62 
percent of the vegetables shipped. Watermelon shipments 
increased 27 percent this particular week. However, po- 
tato shipments at Hastings declined the same week 11 
percent. 

In early June, most producing areas were in sea- 
sonal decline. Remaining tender vegetables were primar- 
ily confined to Central and North Florida. Out of season 
Hurricane Abby curtailed harvest appreciably in Central 
areas because of the heavy tropical storm rains. By the 
third week of June, harvest was confined to sweet corn, 
celery, eggplant and peppers, primarily in Central and 
West Florida. Potato harvest was finishing up at Hastings 
and watermelon shipments had passed peak volume. Sweet 
corn continued available at Zellwood and nearby mucklands 
through July 10. and watermelons in North and West Florida 
continued of good quality but volume had decreased sharply. 
After this, various summer vegetables constituted most of 
Florida's vegetable supply and the season was ended.

LIMA BEANS 
1967-68 



During 1967-68 an estimated 69. 000 bushels of lima 
beans were produced and harvested for fresh market from 
900 acres, the same as the acreage harvested the previous 
season. Value of beans sold was $312,000 compared to 
$351,000 during 1966-67. 

Processing limas of any variety for commercial 
packwould be in addition to the fresh estimated here. Since 
the known acreage for processing was utilized by less than 
three firms the acreage and production was included in 
miscellaneous crops. 



Limas include Fordhook limas, baby limas, and 
speckled butterbeans. Early harvest began in North Flor- 



ida and the Plant City area during October, then shifted to 
Pompano for a light harvest through the winter and early 
spring. Heaviest production is in the spring and consists 
of widely scattered small acreages. A high percentage of 
the beans produced was consumed within the State. All a- 
creage is included in one annual estimate, classified Spring. 
Interstate shipments are no longer reported daily. Sepa- 
rations from miscellaneous vegetables at the end of the 
season indicate 28 carlots moved interstate. Heaviest 
movement was during May and June. 

There is some interest in contract beans for proc- 
essing. Florida production is expected to continue light 
until such time as a demand for shelled, fresh market or 
processing beans may increase substantially.

SNAP BEANS 
1967-68 



Production of Florida snap beans during 1967-68 was 
estimated 5,956,000 bushels, about 7 percent more than 
was produced during the previous crop year. Of this pro- 
duction, 4, 677, 000 bushels were marketed fresh atanaver- 
age value per bushel of $3. 77 or 9 cents less than the pre- 
vious year's average. Processors utilized 1,152,000 bush- 
els at an average price of $1. 67 per bushel. An estimated 
127,000 bushels were left in the field due to economic rea- 
sons. The combined sales totaled $19,554,000, only 
$49,000 more than the previous season. The winter period 
(January, February and March) averaged $4. 56, a sharp 
increase over the fall and spring average prices. 

The Pompano area produced 44 percent of the State's 
volume. Bush varieties, heavyto round green beans, with 
a few yellow wax, were grown. Planting began in mid- 
September and continued into late March. Harvesting was 
continuous from late October into early May. Dade County 
produces lesser supplies of bush beans with some con- 
tracted for processing. The Everglades area produces 
mostly fall and spring crops. Bush varieties are grown 
with considerable acreage contracted for processing. Prac- 
tically all production from the Zellwood mucklands fall crop 
was utilized in processing. Rather limited acreages for 
fresh market are grown, fall and spring, at Sanford, Plant 
City and in North Florida. In North Florida, interest is 



increasing in production for processing. Losses were 
heavy in the Hastings spring area experimental acreage 
for processing. 

Pole bean production began in the early fall in Gads- 
den County of West Florida. Plantings were heavy to 191 
varieties. Fall production was heavier than spring pro- 
duction mainly because of labor conservation for work in 
shade tobacco. Plant City also grows fall and spring pole 
beans, heavy to 191 variety. Neither of these areas com- 
pare with the large acreage grown over a long period in Dade 
County, where 5, 790 acres produced an estimated 1, 586,000 
bushels, of which 1,558,000 were marketed. Harvest began 
in late October and continued into the first week of May with 
peak production near the end of the season, or in late April. 
Plantings ran heavy to McCaslan and Dade varieties. 

Crops in various areas were subjected to inclement 
weather as presented in the opening summary. The favor- 
able weather following fall rains was conducive to heavy 
yields, highest of record, averaging 146 bushels per acre; 
pole beans, included, averaged higher than bush beans. 
State average yields were surprisingly similar the last 3 
years, averaged approximately 123 bushels per acre — 
all varieties and types of harvest. Pole beans are all har- 
vested by hand. More and more bush beans are harvested 
mechanically.

CABBAGE 
1967-68 



Cabbage produced and marketed during the 1967-68 
season in Florida was estimatedat 7 , 820, 000 crates. This 
is a recordmarketedbutthe 1950-51 season produced slight - 
lyinexcessof this. Anestimated 17, 600 acres were plant- 
ed, of which 17, 000 were harvested. Yields were outstand- 
ing. Generally favorable weather and the increase in hy- 
brid varieties grown produced 460 crates per acre. 

Sales were mostly good. A combin ation of bags and 
crates for the entire season averaged $1. 75 per unit. De- 
cember, April and June were the lowest monthly averages. 
January, February, March and May ranged from $1.80 to 
S2. 00. The total value of the crop was $13,685,000, up 28 
percent over the previous crop. 

Most cabbage grown in Florida is transplanted with 
plants grown in local seedbeds. Some early season plants 
are grown in Georgia and the Carolinas. A small early acre- 
age is seeded direct to the field in the Zellwoodmuck soils, 
and considerable acreage is seeded direct to the field in the 
Everglades. Earliest harvest was from the direct seeded 
acreage at Zellwood, followed by light harvest from early 
transplanted acreages. The Hastings area increasedplant- 
ings over the previous year appreciably, especiably for 



early harvest. These early cabbage caused a heavier per- 
centage of the total shipments to move in December than in 
previous years. A hurricane disaster in the Lower Rio 
Grande Valley of Texas prevented heavy supplies at this 
time from that area, and demand for Florida cabbage was 
better than normal. The important Hastings tri-county area 
planted a total of 8, 200 acres andproduced an estimated 48 
percent of the State's total production. Harvest was con- 
tinuous in this important North Florida area through April, 
but declined rather sharply during April . Harvest continued 
in Central Florida into early June . This area transplants 
later in the season than others of the State, continuing into 
early March. The adverse weather that occurred from time 
to time (whether from rain, cold, frost or gusty winds) re- 
sulted in relatively minor damage, all things considered. 
The heaviest losses, percentage-wise , were in the Ever- 
glades area. The recurring cold of February, though rec- 
ord-breaking in its deviation from normal, had acclimated 
plants so that little damage occurred. Mostly, growth 
was slowed, curtailing harvest in some cases. The spring 
drouth prevented sizing in late fields of Central Florida. 
Some harvested very light, or not at all.

CELERY 
1967-68 



The gross value of Florida celery during 1967-68 
was $22,336,000, compared to $19,192,000 the previous 
year. The average value per crate was S3. 08 for the 1967- 
68 season, an increase of 59 cents over the previous sea- 
sonls average . Growers planted 12 , 400 acres compared to 
13,000 the previous year. 

The crop is grown exclusively in four areas. The 
Everglades is the principal area of production with 79 per- 
cent of the state's planted acreage. Supplies were available 
from late October through mid- June. The other producing 
areas are Central Florida, Sarasota and Island Grove. Cut- 
ting began at Zellwood November 6, and was terminatedin 
mid-December to start again in late April and continue into 
June. The sandland crop at Sanford was harvested primar- 
ily during January, February and March. Harvest from 
Oviedo muckland started in early January and continued 
through late May. Harvest at Sarasota is primarily during 



January, February and March but a light production con- 
tinued into late May. Celery in the Island Grove areas is 
grown in the muckland soils of Alachua County . Harvest in 
the Island Grove area was during April, May ana June. The 
crop if generally very hardy and will withstand the extremes 
of we ather quite well. 

The Florida Fresh Fruit Exchange administrates 
the celery marketing order. Their field supervisors pro- 
vide planting, harvesting, and production data. In cooper- 
ation SRS assembles these data into weekly and monthly re- 
ports to the participating industry. 

Most acreage lost by natural cause was attributed 
to adverse weather. The 500 acre loss was in the spring 
crop, partly from bolting. Marketing conditions necessi- 
tated economic abandonment of otherwise marketable celery 
during both seasons.

SWEET CORN 
1967-68 



Florida growers marketed 9, 644, 000 crates of 
sweet corn during 1967-68, 9 percent less than the record 
10, 638. 000 crates produced and sold during 1966-67. Value 
of sales at $24, 744, 000 was only 6 percent less than those 
of the previous crop year, hence,the average value per unit 
was higher - $2, 56 compared to $2. 47 in 1966-67. 

Of the 59, 500 acres planted only 53, 600 were har- 
vested, or 2 percent less planted and 4 percent less har- 
vested than in the previous crop year. 

Planting for fall harvest was almost exclusively in 
the Everglades mucklands and began in early August. Har- 
vest got underway in early October, and with weather con- 
ditions generally favorable, volume increased until late 
November. As supplies declined in late December, har- 
vest began at Pompano and continued through April. Pro- 
duction from this important winter and early spring area 
was supplemented by supplies from the Ft. Myers-Immok- 
alee and Dade County areas. Harvest was active at Ft. 



Myers in mid-January but Dade County did not start until 
early March. Cold weather had a general retarding effect 
on growth and maturity. 

Spring plantings in the Everglades were seriously 
damaged by the late February freeze. Considerable acre- 
age was lost and replanted. This area came into spring 
harvest in April and continued until terminated by heavy 
rains in early June. 

Seeding started at Zellwood about the first of March. 
Harvest started in late May. Volume supplies were avail- 
able most of June. Harvest continued into early July. Early 
June rains from Hurricane Abby were adversely affective. 
Some acreage was lost. 

Other minor producing areas are located in West 
Central, North and extreme West Florida. Harvest from 
these areas occurred in the spring months.

CUCUMBERS 
1967-68 



Florida cucumber production increased to 3,808,000 
bushels during 1967-68, 21 percent more than the previous 
crop year. This increase was harvested from onlyllper- 
centmore acreage, since yields were up 9 percent. Value 
per unit averaged $3. 40 per bushel, forty- six cents less 
than the previous year's average. This 21 percent increase 
in production with its reduced average price sold for 
$12,962,000. only 6 percent more than gross value of the 
previous crop. 

Pickle cucumbers utilized in saline and sterilized 
process are estimated separately and are excluded from 
these data but are included in miscellaneous vegetables. 

Cucumbers are especially adapted to sandy soils, 
and are grown in practically all vegetable areas except 
Florida's mucklands. The Southwest Counties or the Ft. 
Myers-Immokalee area grew 46 percent of the State's har- 
vested acreage. Shipments from this area began in Octo- 
ber and attained full production for fall in November and 
December. Supplies were gradually decreasing during 
January to very limited in February. Cold damaged plants 
on several occasions. Spring harvest began, very light, 
in early March, but built up to peak proportions in April 
and early May. 



West Central Counties produced heavily in the early 
fall and mid-spring. Principal center of supply was the 
Wauchula area. 

Dade County and Pompano-Martin areas produced 
over a wide period with heaviest volume in late fall and 
early spring, but with a definitely light trend in January 
and February. Low temperatures and cold winds affected 
crops along the Lower East Coast throughout the winter. 
Growthwas slow and some replanting was necessary. Peak 
movement was reached in May. The Pompano marketing 
center drew cucumbers from a wide area.being headquart- 
ers for a large portion of the buying element of the industry. 
Included in shipments from this area were most imports 
into Florida for repacking and distribution. 



North-Central areas, heaviest at Samsula-Sanford. 
Webster and Zellwood grew both fall and spring table stock 
and pickles. Pickles moved into f re sh(0'Nite dill) channels 
and for regular pickle processing. North Florida hadwide- 
ly scattered plantings of table stock in the fall with a heavier 
concentration of table stock and pickles in the spring. Har- 
vest began in May and extended into June, closing out the 
Florida season.

EGGPLANT 
1967-68 



Florida's eggplant production declined 17 percent 
from the previous crop year, to 976,000 bushels. A yield 
of 71 Lufhels per acre less than the previous season was 
mainly the reasonfor this lower productions only 100 acres 
less than lastyear were harvested. Average value at $3. 19 
per bushel pushed total value to 83,116,000, 15 percent 
greater than the previous year. 

Eggplant was shipped from Florida every month of 
the 1967-68 season with peak movement in December and 
May. Heaviest volume came from the Pompano area with 
lesser quantities, fall and spring, from other areas of the 
state. 

By September, harvest of eggs was underway in 
North and North Central areas . By the end of October most 
areas were harvesting. The Pompano area suffered con- 
siderable rainfall during October which washed beds and 



caused some loss of fertilizer. Disease control became a 
problem and pack-out was reduced. 

Dry, windy weather was beneficial to the Pompano 
area in December as shipments reached fall peak. Frost 
on November 19-20 practically ended production in North 
Florida. Central Florida and Ft. Myers-Immokalee con- 
tinued harvesting ample supplies. 

Supplies from the Pompano area continued steady 
throughout the winter season. Wind damage and bloom drop 
became severe in March as cold weather prevailed. Sup- 
plies became available from the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area 
in mid- April and from Plant City in mid-May. Rains in 
South Florida in mid-May lowered quality and reducedpack- 
out especially in the Pompano area. By June , Pompano sup- 
plies were decreasing as scattered plantings in North and 
Central Florida began to reach volume . Supplies from these 
areas closed out the season in July.

ESCAROLE 
1967-68 



Fscarole and chicory or endive production in Flor- 
ida during 1967-68 was estimated at 3,184,000 crates of 
which3, 024, 000 crateswere sold, compared with 3, 080, 000 
cratesthe previous season. Only 6, 600 acres were plant- 
ed compared to 7,500 the previous rear. The 5, 900 acres 
harvested was 1, 100 acres less than was harvested the pre- 
vious year. The lighter production sold well and averaged 
$1. 92 per crate, 57 cents more than the $1. 35 average for 
the previous year. The crop was valued at $5,821,000. 

The crop is grown primarily in muck soil. Harvest 
stretcl.es over a long period from late October through 
earl\ June. The Everglades is the major producing area 
wiLh t>£ percent of the planted acreage. Light seeding be- 
gan in early September and gradually increased as the sea- 
son advanced. By early October thinning of first plantings 
was acti\e and light harvest began later in the month. 



Weather was favorable during the early fall months. How- 
ever, rain and fog coupled with warm days in mid-Decem- 
berwere detrimental to older plantings. The coolerweath- 
er during the winter months was generally beneficial except 
for occasional frost burn. Harvest began declining after 
mid-April and continued in a limited way through May. 
Zellwood is the second area of production with generally 
two periods of heavy harvest. The first period began in 
late October, increased to volume by early November and 
started declining in early December. The second period 
of heavy production began in early April, increased to vol- 
ume by late April and continued into early June. Some 
acreage was planted on sandland between muck pockets as 
an insurance of supply, since muck soils are more suscept- 
ible to low temperatures than the nearby warmer sands. 

The economic abandonment shown was reported in 
the Everglades and at Zellwood.

LETTUCE 
1967-68 



Florida lettuce production for the 1967-68 season 
was 360,000 cwt. compared to 351,000 cwt. the previous 
crop year. The 4, 800 acresplanted was an increase of 300 
acres over the previous year. Production was valued at 
$3. 492, 000. Nearly 52 percent of the crop was planted in 
the Everglades; North Central planted 18 percent and West 
Central 16 percent of the crop. 

Heaviest production was in Ptomaine lettuce followed 
by Boston, Iceberg, leaf lettuces and Bibb. Intrastate con- 
sumption is rather heavy especially Iceberg and Bibb va- 
rieties. 

The Everglades maintains a relatively steady vol- 
ume from early November through mid-Mav. The crop 



was rather susceptible to extremes of temperature which 
caused seeder formation. The cool weather during the 
winter months was generally beneficial and seeder forma- 
tion was, in general, a minor problem. The crop was quite 
variable in quality and quantity. Zellwood production was 
heaviest during the fall and spring months. Early harvest 
for local market began during October. Harvest increased 
to volume supplies through November and f : ien declined to 
light during midseason, but increased in early April. Sup- 
plies continued available through late M„y and then de- 
clined rapidly. Various varieties are also grown on the 
warmer sandlands in the area as the muck soils are more 
susceptible to cold. Supplies from these two areas are 
supplemented by lesser acreages through Central and South 
Florida.

GREEN PEPPERS 
1967-68 



Pepper production for 1967-68 was estimated at 
6,572, 000 bushels compared to 5, 775, 000 bushels produced 
during the previous year. The 17,100 acres planted were 
only 100 acres more than 1966-67 acreage. 

The total value at $25, 790, 000 was 27percentmore 
than the previous crop's value. The major producing area, 
made up mainly of Broward, Palm Beach East and Martin 
Counties, grew 44 percent of the production. About 42 per- 
cent of the production was grown in the southwestern areas 
on 40 percent of the total planted acreage. 

Most of the South Florida crop is directly seeded in 
the field and planting began in August. In the Ft. Myers- 
Immokalee area, dry weather curtailed some early seeding. 
There .seeding continued through the fall months andtermin- 
ated by early January. Heavy rains in late September and 
early October flooded low spots infields and caused damping 
off in some plants . Hail during the fall season necessitated 
spot re setting. Early harvest commenced in mid- November 
with quality and size improving as the season advanced. Sup- 
plies remained relatively steady during the winter months. 
Plants were subjected to recurring cold spells butmost re- 
covered favorably. Early spring's hot weather followed by 
frequent heavy rains characterized that season. Harvest 



was terminated in June in this area by the arrival of Hurri- 
cane Abby. 

In the Pompano- Martin area, seeding continued into 
December. Recurring rains in the fall washed seedbeds, 
leached fertilizer and caused some root damage. Harvest 
of bell peppers started in mid- November but hot varieties 
were available earlier in the season. During the winter, 
winds and cold temperatures caused lower plant condition 
but steady. strong supplies remained available. Peak har- 
vest occurred in April. Decreasing supplies were available 
until Hurricane Abby curtailed harvesting. 

A small acreage grew in Central Florida during the 
fall season but harvest was in the clean-up stage by Decem- 
ber. Transplanting from seedbeds was underway in the 
Webster area during January, while most plants in other 
northern and Central areas remained in these protection 
units until late March. Considerable resetting was neces- 
sary in the Webster areabecause of the recurring extremely 
cold weather. Harvest began in the Central area in early 
May and supplies peake d during the first of June . Only lim- 
ited supplies were available into July from the northern 
areas.

of Irish Potatoes in 1967-68, valued at 822,991,000. Pro- 
duction was nearly 42 percent more than that of the previous 
year which was seriously damaged byfreeze andprolonged 
shower activity. It was a record crop, though exceeded in 
1957. Although total value was 38 percent greater than the 
year before, the price per cwt. was down only 10 cents. 

Florida production is divided into 3 seasonal groups 
— winter, spring-Hastings, and spring-Other. The ear- 
liest producing area of winter potatoes is in the Everglades 
mucklands, where a small acreage of "reds "and "whites" 
began harvesting in December and finished in late January , 
or about the time Ft. Myers began to dig their early "reds". 
Harvest of "reds" began in Dade County the first half of 
February where 7,650 acres (including about 15 percent 
"whites") were plantedand harvested. Harvest of "whites" 
in the Ft. Myers -Immokalee area began as "red" harvest 
was being completed, or during early March. It is obvious 
that South Florida potatoes, though harvesting in April, are 
all considered winter crop. There is an overlapping be- 
tween completion of winter harvest and beginning spring 
harvest. 

The Hastings 28 , 300 acres planted for spring com- 



pared with 30 , 000 in 1967. The 27,400 acres harvested 
was 27 percent more than the previous year. Losses in 1967 
resulted from adverse weather, as stated above. Losses 
in 1968 were because of June rains. The Hastings crop is 
planted heavily to white-skinned varieties for the potato chip 
industry. A good portion of the crop is contracted for this 
purpose. Late planting andweather conditions delayed the 
crop about 2 weeks. Below freezing temperatures on Feb- 
ruary 12-13 burnt some young plants, rather severely in 
Flagler County. February 2 5-26 frost, the same date as the 
severe freeze of 1967, further set back growth and potential 
harvest. A few potatoes were dug here the third week of 
April, and the first "reds "were dug in early May. The bulk 
of the crop was harvested during May, and through June as 
weather permitted. Average price per cwt. (all grades, 
sizes and types of sale) was estimated at S3. 16. 

Harvest of spring-Other began early in the Sun City 
area of Hillsborough County with a few dug in March, but 
quite active through April into early May. Scattered plant- 
ings across Central Florida were also duginApril. Other 
producing areas of this seasonal group were the late crop in 
the Everglades , and in North and West Florida. Most of the 
West Florida crop markets through Atmore, Alabama.

SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1968 



Spinach for processing was grown in the mucklands 
of Orange and Lake Counties. Harvested acres declined 
to 1, 900 from 2, 200 the previous year. The 186, 000 tons 
useable spinach delivered to plants was valued at S391. 000, 
28 percent less than the previous winter. 



ed to the processing plant door. Most Florida spinach was 
utilized by plants located in Florida. Georgia, and Alabama. 

Planting got underway in November and harvest was 
completed by March. Frost from time to time is desirable 
to control weeds. Early spinach was subjected to warmer 
weather than desired. An estimated 200 acres were lost. 



Value per unit was based on useable spinach deli ver-

SQUASH 
1967-68 



Florida produced 1,417,000 bushels of squash, about 
18 percent more than during the 1966-67 season. The 9,200 
acres planted was up only about 6 percent more than the 
previous year. This crop!s sales value was estimated at 
$6,103,00'), making the average price of $4. 31 only $0.06 
more than the previous season's average price. Slightly 
more than 56 percent of the planted acreage was located in 
the southeastern area. The entire southern part of the State, 
accounting for 75percentof the planted acreage, harvested 
80 percent of the total production. 

Shipments were from September until June. Except 
for the extremely small percentages in September 1967 and 
Junel968, most months showed even distribution with the 
highest movement of 16 percent in April. 

Harvest continued during the fall season in the north- 
ern and Central areas of the State until terminated by frost 



and cold weather late November and in December. 

The principal market outlets for the important Low- 
er East Coast were in Pompano and Homestead. Yellow 
crooknecked varieties dominated the plantings in Dade Coun- 
ty. During January that area became the principal source 
for yellow crooknecked squash. Dade and Pompano areas 
supplied the majority of the cropwith only limited supplies 
from the Immokalee area during February. 

Planting was active during March into North Flor- 
ida. Frost in late March damaged plants and slowed ger- 
mination in Central and North Florida. 

First spring cuttings occurred in the Plant City area 
in mid-April. All varieties were available but ranheavily 
to yellow crooknecks. Statewide spring harvest declined 
sharply in mid-May but continued very limited into early 
June.

STRAWBERRIES 
1967-68 



Production of Florida strawberries has decreased 
almost 50 percent from the peak 1964-65 season. Total 
value received for the crop at $4,358,000 is 46 percent 
less than that same season, and 25 percent less than the 
1967 crop. 

From last year, production declined 14 percent, 
harvested acreage 5 percent, and yield 9 percent. 

About 46 percent of the production came from the 
Plant City- Palmetto area and 36 percent from the Lower 
East Coast. The rest is grown in scattered areas in Cen- 
tral and North Florida. Shipments in March accounted for 
41 percent of the total with April moving 30 percent. 



Harvesting began in December in the Plant City 
and Lower East Coast areas. Warm weather lowered 
yields on the Lower East Coast as supplies remained light 
through February. Mid-twenty temperatures in North 
Florida froze fruit and bloom in mid- January. Some grow- 
ers saved berries by sprinkling. 



Supplies continued light through February and in- 
creased sharply in March. Peak volume was reached in 
late March - early April. The Lower East Coast and Plant 
City areas completed harvest in late April as North Flor- 
ida continued with light supplies into May.

TOMATOES 
1967-68 



During the 1967-68 season, Florida produced an es- 
timated 17,817,000 equivalent forty-pound crates of fresh 
tomatoesfrom 47,000 harvested acres. The F. O. B. price 
averaged $5. 05 per crate. An additional 3, 430, 000 equiv- 
alent forty-pound crates, utilized by processors, averaged 
$0. 64 per crate delivered to the canning plant. The entire 
crop was valued at $92, 159. 000. 

Tomatoes for mature green harvest, one of the two 
categories of Florida's crop, represented 89 percent of the 
total 47,800 acres planted in 1967-68. Acreage for vine 
ripe harvest, the other category, yielded 850 forty-pound 
units per acre from 5,300 harvested acres. This 11 per- 
cent of the total acreage ; accounted for 25 percent of the 
total fresh production. This acreage was primarily located 
in the Immokalee-Naples and Pompano-Martin areas. 

Most vine ripes are packed in twenty-pound units 
with a small amount of selected sizes and quality packaged 



in eight-pound flats. Most mature greens are packed in 
forty-pound units. 

Generally ideal weather -mild, warm days and cool 
nights, characterized the fall growing season of 1967-68. 
Frost and freezing temperatures occurred for the most 
part in the northern and western sections of the State, there- 
fore had little adverse effect on the majority of the acre- 
age. The cold, dry period during the winter allowed max- 
imum harvest of the reduced acreage. The spring crop 
was damaged because a warming trend did not develop un- 
til late March. Drought, compounded by sharp cold periods, 
prevailed through much of the early spring. Harvest ter-

WATERMELON 
1967-68 



Florida produced 7, 560,000 hundredweight of water- 
melons during 1968 from 56, 000 harvested acres. At $2. 10 
per hundredweight, the total value, Sl5, 876,000 was 9 per- 
cent less than the 1967 season's value. Earliest harvest 
began in mid-March in the Immokalee area. These south- 
western counties with only 17 percent of the planted acre- 
age produced about 31 percent of the total production. Other 
South Florida and West Florida produced 16 percentand 13 
percent, respectively. The northern and Central areas 
accounted for about 50 percent of the planted acreage and 
produced 40 percent of the total harvest. 



Planting started in late November in the Immokalee 
area and finished in January. Other areas began seeding 
in January and planting progressed northward until the en- 
tire crop was in the ground by early April. During January 
young plants in the Immokalee area discolored because of 
cold weather but recovered well. Winds and extremely 



cold weather during February declined plant condition and 
damaged young fruit. During this period replanting oc- 
curred in most northern and Central areas because of the 
adverse weather. Germination and growth were slowed. 
Frost and freezing temperatures in March resulted in losses 
of whole fields in some northern and Central areas. Plants 
in these areas were subjected to a prolonged drought dur- 
ing their early growing period. The dry weather continued 
through most of the spring and extended into West Florida. 



Harvest reached peak volume in late May in the 
Immokalee area as light supplies became available north- 
ward into the Central areas. Peak supplies became avail- 
able during mid -June in the northern counties. Quality and 
size were very good in most of these northern and western 
areas where irrigation offset the early drought effect. Be- 
cause cold, adverse weather slowed maturity, many areas 
came into volume production simultaneously and created an 
acute transportation shortage.
